Sen. Mark Kirk: Back from ignominy?

In June 2009, then-Rep. Mark Kirk (IL) was one of eight Republicans who shamefully voted for the Waxman-Markey cap-and-trade bill. But Kirk’s days of sucking up to the greens seem to be over.

Faced with the prospect of being attacked by the greens in their campaign to scare Congress away from taking action against the EPA, Environment and Energy Daily reported today,

Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois, said he is “not terribly concerned” about taking heat from green groups for his criticism of EPA action on carbon emissions. “The consensus behind the climate change bill collapsed and then further deteriorated with the personal and political collapse of Vice President [Al] Gore,” Kirk said in a brief interview last week.

Let’s hope Kirk’s votes match his Al Gore-trashing rhetoric.

One thought on “Sen. Mark Kirk: Back from ignominy?”

  1. Ignominy, Illinois is a small town on the Illinois River. Nothing ever happened there so they make things up and vote for people like Mark Kirk. It gives them something to do when there isn’t any paint drying, grass growing or haircuts to watch.
